Loss of suction when vacuuming

There is no suction when vacuuming. When I use the hose there is no loss of suction. I have cleaned it out, cleaned the brush and the hoses. I can run the vacuum over the same spot over and over and it will not pick anything up. Do I need to take it to a repair shop or can I fix it myself?

    Same problem will not pick up on carpet or tile floors. Checked belt and it looks ok. The hose works fine but vac does not pick up anything.

    I did everything the manual stated to remove clogs but after reading some of the solutions on this website, I discover it is a little door that opens when you use the upright and closes when you use the hose. The door keeps getting stuck in the close position causing the dirt to go back on the floor. How do you fix it so it doesn't get stuck?

    I have replaced the exact same Hoover Windtunnel Bagless Upright vacuum 3 TIMES! I am on the 3rd vacuum and am having the exact same problem as all others before... looses suction once on carpet. Laid it down and the roller brush is spinning. Something has to be terribly wrong with this model. The 1st one gave out on me in the first month! And I have had the 3rd one less than 1 year - same exact problem. WalMart will refuse to replace again... Isnt there a recall or manufacture defect with these?? Surely there is with all the on-line complaints and me on my 3rd Vac w/ sam issues!!!

    same issue............it seems as though the height adjustment is broken and not engaging when the carpet height is changed.

    I also noticed that it feels much more lighter when using now that its not picking up. When I first bought it, it seemed quite heavy to use.........its not even 6 months old!!

I had the same problem, but it wasn't a belt. Instead, it was the input hole under the roller that was jammed up with lint and other stuff.

You probably just need a belt.

My Dyson Vacuum DC24 suction loss.


You sound pretty savvy in your troubleshooting. Take a look at this video. You may have a split in one of your three suction hoses. I tried to find a video for a DC24 but to no avail. These two models are pretty close and this video should help you out.

Lg 300B no suction through hose


If you have a loss of suction overall, that generally means one of two things, either you have a clog somewhere near the motor or the motor is fried and will never turn fast enough to make proper vac.

Loss of suction on hand tools (DC07)


It sounds like there's probably a clog in the hose. Drop a small coin or marble down the hose and see if it falls through. There's going to be a loss of suction in the power nozzle too, just not as noticeable when vacuuming carpet.
There could also be a clog behind the filter where the hose plugs into tank, or a dirty filter.

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?


Check for a clog where the power nozzle connects to the hose. Clogs or leaks in the hose will both cause loss of suction/air flow. Another possibility is broken or worn out fan blades.

Suction perfect when in upright position, but when tilted to actually clean there is total loss of suction - cannot see blockage anywhere. Thanks for your help.


If you are confident there are no blockages, look underneath, where the brush is, and you will see a short length of reinforced clear plastic hose. This often develops a split which results in loss of suction. You can pull the hose off at the motor end and then unscrew it from the brush end to examine it thoroughly. If you find a split, it's best not to try and tape it up (except as a very temporary measure) - a new one is not expensive.

Loss of suction and very noisy


The most obvious and first fix would be to clean the filter. The noise is the tip-off. If your vacuum is noisier than usual the most common issue is a clogged filter, hose or bag. Check all of these. UNPLUGGED, use a straightened wire coat hanger to fish out any hoses and entry from the bag or bagless housing.

Foriegn obstruction is the main cause of noise coupled with loss of suction.

Dyson suction loss


make sure the filters in the bottom are clean, then remove the canister and you will need to clean it thouroughly, pay close attention to the upper section inside where the "cones" come togetheri have read that they are prone to clog up here and lose suction, google dyson suction loss or how to clean a dyson ect...pay attention to getting the rod that releases the bottom to dump back in the correct place or it will not work right. a few write ups tell about this!

Suction loss?


hi samdan... have you checked all the hose attachment vents .. ie Under the vacuum as well... How long is it since you replaced the filters?

Try giving the Yellow cone inside a blow out. these tend to become clogged from time to time!
